The Ancient Trees of Windsor with Julian Hight

This event is now sold out. If you would like to be notified if tickets become available, please contact mkwolseley@cumberlandlodge.ac.uk

Julian Hight has travelled widely, camera in hand, to document and tell the stories of historic ancient trees. Using both archive and contemporary photographs, old paintings and maps, Julian explores the story of Windsor Great Park and Forest told through its remaining ancient trees and customs – living links to its rich history.

Established as one of the first Norman royal forests by William I, the park and wider forest hosts trees thought to date back to the conquest. Windsor is one of the prime sites in Europe for ancient oaks and their associated wildlife – living descendants of the original ‘wildwood’.

Signed copies of Julian’s lavishly illustrated books will be available on the day.

Chair of Wessex Ancient Tree Forum, Julian presents regular talks and appeared as judge on Channel 4’s Tree of the Year TV programme, and is a verifier for the Woodland Trust Ancient Tree Inventory. He launched the Reviving Selwood Forest project in Somerset and campaigns for ancient trees and woodland.



Guests are invited to gather outside the main entrance of Cumberland Lodge from 4pm on Sunday 28 April for a heritage tree walk (approx. 45 mins) with Julian in Windsor Great Park.

Following the walk, we will move into Flitcroft, in The Mews conference centre here at Cumberland Lodge for some refreshments and a conversation with Julian. Following the talk, audience members will have the chance to ask Julian questions.
